    You'll Need:
    • 1 c. brown sugar, packed
    • 1/3 c. shortening

    • 1 tsp ground allspice
    • 1 tsp ground cloves
    • 1 tsp ground cinnamon

    In a large bowl combine the first 4 ingredients, mixing well. Add remaining ingredients, stirring well. Dough will be quite heavy. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.

    Divide dough into 1/4's, roll each quarter section out on a floured surface. Rolled dough should be about 1/4" thick.
    Carefully place each section on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for 8-10 minutes at 350F

    These look so amazing I can't wait to try them! I love pecan pie, it's one of my favorites but I don't like store bought crust and I hate making my own crust.
